Yesterday, Drawing

An Artwork A Day, Digital Art, Doodles, Drawings, Illustrations

I drew this on Photoshop yesterday afternoon while I was sleepy and was in a place where it isn’t okay to sleep. I guess this can fit in on my “An Artwork A Day” thing, but I am going to stop counting them. I have a lot more drawings but I haven’t posted or scanned them yet. Too busy.

yes it’s unfinished. I was really sleepy. haha

this is how messy I normally draw. . . but I draw faster this way.

And I was too sleepy to care. Somehow I want to keep this messy style because I am most comfortable with this style. Loose and free. I don’t really care whether people will like or hate this style. I know there are probably people who are into this.

The First Digital Painting That I Finished

Digital Art, Portrait

This is the first digital painting/portrait that I finished (because the first one I did still isn’t finished.).

I did this as a take home test for a job that I didn’t get.

I guess my work wasn’t enough. . . or, as usual, there’s so much competition.

It took me 6 hours.

I used Adobe Photoshop CS6

I was instructed to only paint the face and so I didn’t touch the rest of his body and background.

this is the reference I chose from the ones that they sent.

They have certain guidelines like: the colors I am only allowed to use, not too many details, and make them look prettier

-from what I can remember. (it was years ago)

I’m not so sure if I followed it correctly. hahaha. I might have added too many wrinkles – can’t help it, I always like bringing out flaws.

I remembered one of the bosses smirking when he saw what I was doing when they asked me to demo after the job interview. But this take home test came after that.

I still like traditional painting better than digital.
